There are a number of reasons why people enjoy working for Tamr, from our office culture, to benefits, to social events and career growth opportunities. Recently, we spoke with some Tamrs in our Cambridge office to get a better sense of what it’s like to work at Tamr from their perspectives.
Here’s what they said.
Our Office Has ‘Good Energy’
“Our office is a fun place to work because there is an energy and engagement in what we do every day. People genuinely care about our goals and the ways we help our customers solve business problems. It is not a passive place to work–which is exciting for me personally.
Complementing that energy is a massive variety in personal work styles and free time activities which makes every day a little bit different. Sometimes we charge project mountains, sometimes the team disappears for days to just research / or write code and be insulated.
Lastly, we have extremely smart people and we continue to hire more. The vibe in the office and the work we do has a consistent intellectual horsepower that impresses me every day.”
- Larry Simmons, Chief Customer Officer
We Know How to Handle Work-Life Balance
“Tamr’s culture epitomizes the phrase “work hard, play hard.” Our unlimited PTO policy allows employees to take the time they need, when they need it. The relaxed vibe motivates myself and my coworkers to work hard and still have the flexibility to balance life outside our jobs!”
- Sohaiyla Khalili, Product Marketing Manager
“There’s a wide variety of social activities at Tamr, ranging from afternoon ice cream to larger team outings, like when the Design team went to the ICA together. The Women of Tamr group has done some of my favorite events like bringing in speakers, going to plays, or picnics outside. I like the variety in the types and size of the events, there’s something to fit everyone.”
- Sharon Roth, Senior Product Designer
We Emphasize Career Growth
“At Tamr, we have weekly check-ins with managers to ensure general happiness on projects, and quarterly feedback loops to discuss future goals and past learning experiences.”
- Rashi Verma, DataOps Engineer
“I have been at Tamr for only 6+ months but have had the opportunity to be involved in work and projects that have broadened my horizons and exposed me to new and different ways of thinking.”
- Lisa Skinner, Head of Growth
We Focus on Collaboration and Communication
“The key to being successful in any role at Tamr is communicating. In the sales engineering team, we of course need to communicate quickly and often with customers. Just as important is being able to communicate with others in the team and in the company. Asking questions, getting feedback, and responding to others are all critical to being an effective team member.”
- Mingo Sanchez, Sales Engineer
There’s No Such Thing as a ‘Typical Day’
“No day is ever the same at Tamr! I go in each week knowing my day will be different, exciting, and present new challenges. Yesterday, I started my day with an oat milk chai, dived into my unread emails/Slack messages, started planning our September company summer outing, photographed our office space for social media (including our arcade room!), helped on-board and meet with two new hires, worked on designing our new office space, and helped coordinate a customer onsite meeting!”
- Emma Wheeler, People Operations Associate
